2700 cfm Cooling Components electric fan Hydro-boost from Power Brake

A 2700 cfm Cooling Components electric fan will be used to pull air accros the aluminum Fluidyn radiator. A Billet Specialties Tru-Trac serpentine belt system will keep the water flowing and cooling.

Instead of a standard vacuum powered power steering booster, we are going with a hydro-boost from Power Brak. The hydro-boost hydraulic pressure to apply pressure on the master cylinder rather that engine vacuum. In this application we are using the power steering pump to power the hydroboost, so we have to make sure we use a heavy-duty PS pump.

hydroboost radiator overflow

To hold the extra fluid needed by the power steering / hydro-boost pump, a remote reservoir has added next to the radiator overflow.

No bulkhead fittings for this Vintage Air unit, the hoses are going under the firewall.
